The Art of Alchemy: Air, Earth, Fire, Water and Spirit. Our planet is composed of fractals, patterns, spirals and voronois. Photographing  the elements reveal shapes that transform nature into abstract art, sculptures and installations.

A naturalist her journal documents endangered biodiversity and habitats. Capturing the essence she shares their story through art and installations. Collaborating with scientists, environmental organizations, museums, galleries and governments she gives nature a voice to connect with humans.

Aîa comes from a family of historical naturalists dating to the 1700's in Paris and later in the 1900s in the USA

METAVERSE EVOLUTION

 Aîa discovered Bitcoin in 2014 becoming one of the first businesses in the world to accept the currency in her Organic Restaurant Terrae. She would host some of the first Bitcoin Meetups in her country Panama.

 

In 2017 she discovered NFTs and began collecting them and purchasing digital land in the different Metaverses. Although she immediately observed it would be an essential part of her art she observed the ecosystem as it develop in order perfect her strategy and learn the proper way of minting, hosting, and longevity for her NFTs. 

Ambassadors for Environmental Protection, the Monkeys provide a voice for endangered biodiversity.  

At a young age Mako and Sky where victims to the cruelty of humans before being rescued by Aîa. This brought them into the evolutionary future of primates.

Using the technological tools available to them here they hope to inspire humans to care for our planet.

Mako and Sky taught Aîa how to see the world in a different perspective, one more connected to nature. They taught her to speak in their language Tamarin and to communicate with Mother Nature.

FREEDIVE NATIONAL RECORDS

 Aîa's curiosity for exploration began at a young age. Growing up in the Pearl Islands of Panama, the Ocean is her muse. She began snorkeling at age 5, Scuba Diving at 16, evolving into freediving where she enters an atmosphere free of gravity.

 

On one breath she can interact with marine species as an equal within their natural habitat. Her art is influenced by her desire to protect the natural world. Being born from two Oceans in Panama gave her a unique perspective into Marine Life.  In 2016 Aîa set two National Records for Freedive in her country Panama.
